Don't worry - it was utterly awful. I went, perhaps just before it closed.
It was a desolate '90s set of corporate exhibitions and kid-oriented dumbed-down hands-off exhibits - including a closed-off slow bus ride around the perimeter track. Very disappointing after Porthcurno!
It completely mirrored BT's schitzophrenic split. To pay to go in the Goonhilly exhibition we paid someone at one register. This ticket did not cover the tour of Arthur's insides. To get that, we had to shuffle one step to the right, where the same person then had to use a different register to give us a different ticket for a different tour run by a different person.
The Goonhilly tour was all glitz and no content. I suspected it was run by BT Retail. The tour around Arthur was done by an earnest chap in a hi-viz and hat, and was technical and interesting.
Wow, those images are GORGEOUS!
Fit eight backpacks, a kitebuggy, a 5-man tent, three helmets and two people in for a weekend.
It was the proper successor to the original Mini - cubbyholes and intelligent design, and very honest about itself.
It was hilarious fun and great on fuel too. Always thought a tiny turbo would've suited it as a factory upgrade!
Odd. I had a '55 that was over 120,000 on the original clutch.
Perhaps yours was more of a seating issue - the lack of footrest did mean that it was very easy to ride the clutch...
Quite a few small business owners ask for Windows hosting - it used to be because of Frontpage. I guess Fasthosts are just responding to that gap in the market. They have Linux shared hosting too.
It's a REMOTE CONTROL app. The camera records to its own internal SD card.
Yes, but it doesn't really help testing the pitot tubes... assuming they're using them!
I've been playing with Dave's code. It looks like he eventually abandoned it because of how utterly slow it was when it had to call out to external memory.
Looks like it's deeper than just comment spam too: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=6604251
Had much the same experience at Dinorwic.
One has to understand that when it comes to a power station, you want daily life to be quiet - if things at a power station are a bit exciting then you probably don't want to be there!
It's *always* the cleaners. I sometimes think they do it on purpose.
Nope, that's the BA123.
"Smart Scopes are part of Canonical's long-term plan to make the Unity Dash as much a web-search interface as application launcher. The goal is to add some 100 different search providers to the Unity Dash, allowing you to search everything from websites like IMDb and DeviantArt to your browser bookmarks, Tomboy notes and more"
So Sherlock from MacOS 8 then?
"the best camera is the one that's with you".
When I visited Sheffield at the weekends I would often traipse back down south on a Monday morning with 2L of Yorkshire tapwater in my bag!
No, it's actually called a "solidus"!
"A long-standing question for the project has been the reconstruction of the mercury delay lines used by the original. These are problematic for several reasons: the precision engineering required to manufacture them is demanding, the operational, maintenance and durability aspects of mercury delay lines are challenging, especially for a museum rather than laboratory environment, and the cost of buying the mercury is significant. After investigations by Peter Linington into other storage technologies we have decide that the main store will be constructed using nickel delay lines. These were the immediate successor to mercury delay lines, follow similar physical principles, and are known to be reliable and long-lived in operation. That said, the techniques used in constructing them are essentially lost so Peter has mostly recently been investigating these and has been able to demonstrate a first proof of concept prototype.
Given the importance of mercury delay lines in the history of early computers, the project has given itself the objective of, at a minimum, building a small stand-alone demonstration rig showing a mercury delay line in operation. One route to this might be to experimentally refill the surviving short delay line."

Whoops; i've just realised that Draughts was for the Ferranti Mark I, not the Baby. Carry on!
The draughts game for the Manchester Baby had a graphical output on one of the CRTs; beating EDSAC by at least a year.

If you think Monopoly is a colossal faff you haven't played a real board game...
"Stocking fillers" are usually cheap!
Is this not just circular polarisation?
"Data resident in S3, by contrast, is accessible in real time."
Define "real time"?
Yeah, no university student is going to come out with any experience of middleware other than picking their (in my experience incorrect) timetable up off the University's student intranet...
The point of the high street is that it satisfies an instant need. If I was willing to wait a few weeks for a delivery I would've ordered something from the internet!
...but Casino Royale was an hour-long poker game when I don't understand poker, and Quantum of Solace's plot was [spoiler alert] some guys trying to set up a utilities monopoly in Bolivia. [/spoiler alert] Exciting stuff.
No, the answer is it would end up looking like an Alienware laptop.
A swift two-finger scroll to you!
...it makes more sense than the truth.
I have a roomfull of VAXen; I will beat you all.
That's nice, but hobbyists seem to like some actual hardware to hold in their hand, which runs out-of-the-box.
Look at the success of the Raspberry Pi - to play around with Linux you could have rented a VM from anywhere, or set up VMware Workstation, but somehow the act of having something real to hold in your hand has sparked a bit of excitement.
Look at the success of the Arduino - before then sure, grab a PIC or a Stamp and code away, learn everything from utter bare-bones, but somehow the act of having something real to old in your hand that runs out of the box with a cross-platform IDE and some good real-world examples seems to have sparked a bit of excitement.
These guys have got their heads around the first idea; if they get the second idea sorted they might well spark another Saturday-afternoon makers' revolution.
It looks like a fairly involved build. How much is your time worth?
Plug the Superhub into a clockwork mains timer and set it to turn the power off for one 'period' at 4AM (about 15 mins on mine).
Gah. Guess what i'll be whistling for the next few hours.
Top shedding on the lumps of ice problem!
It's no VAX.
Surprisingly difficult to receive outside of the South :(
No, *you* are not exempt, it is only *that* *cookie* which is exempt.
Just because your site needs a preferences cookie or an authentication cookie for it to fundamentally work does not mean that you get a blanket exemption to set Google Analytics or ShareThis cookies, for example.
Bit more difficult with my mother's. Would need to set up some kind of coal feed auger...
...but isn't this a network-layer problem, not an application-layer one?
Most of the team smoke like chimneys.
I like his articles.
